As a serial entrepreneur and systems thinker, Heerad Sabeti is devoted to pursuing systemic solutions to complex social, environmental and economic challenges. For over 25 years, he has been working to advance the development of an emerging fourth sector of organizations at the intersection of the public, private and nonprofit sectors. The fourth sector is comprised of for-benefit enterprises that are designed to seamlessly integrate public purposes with business means, harnessing entrepreneurial energy to shape a more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient economy.
To accelerate the fourth sector’s development, Sabeti has been a driving force behind numerous national and international initiatives. He advises governments, corporations and NGOs on multi-sector collaboration, sustainable economic development, and market-based solutions to societal challenges.
